May those who delight in my vindication shout for joy and gladness; may they always say, “The LORD be exalted, who delights in the well-being of his servant.”
Even in the midst of trouble crying out to God for help; there comes to David a settled peace and rest as he ponders the assurance of God’s deliverance. He has God’s Word on the matter, so he prays through until he receives the blessing from heaven, and then he rejoices in it.
Allow the Word of God to dwell in your mind until you are convinced by the facts that everything God has said is true for you. Train yourself to confidently think and speak the very same things God has already said. Great things happen when your thoughts and words are aligned with God’s.
David hid God’s Word in his heart; he depended on God for everything according to His Word. Psalm 119 has 176 verses dealing with God’s powerful influence in the life of those who live by His Word. David built his life around God and His Word.
So purposely take some time to saturate yourself with God’s Word. Think deeply on passages until the meaning opens up to your understanding, and allow it to flood your heart. Strengthen you faith by boldly praying and saying what God has said until He brings it to pass in your life.
Let God’s promises of salvation, deliverance, healing, provisions and protection be marked indelibly on your heart until His love causes you to sing His praises. Walk in the light of God’s written Word; Shout it out loud, be at peace and Be Encouraged! -JSP
